Thanks ccowa 18, i'll keep my fingers crossed.I got the same response from Ducati customer service. I was "assured" on 2 occasions that the Icons would be in US dealers by end of March. So much for that. I have also recently heard that they are in fact on US soil as we speak. Maybe a delay at the port? My dealer (in FL) had me start the paperwork today as he said they anticipate arrival of the Icons in the next couple of weeks. They also went to the Spain demo. Here's hoping
Hey Eyecon, they are the only dealer in VT. The party is in South Burlington, VT.Thanks for the info. Hey Firebird where in vt is your dealer?? Maybe I'll come up.
Man, tonight I will dream it to be true!!!Last Thursday, the local Ducati sales manager told me my Classic is on the water. My dealer is planning an "unveiling party" for the Scrambler on 04/18. I assume that my bike will be at the dealer by then.
I know my dealer from Seattle was sent over there too. I would venture to guess it's based on Volume of previous sales, demographics, etc.Are there different priority levels of dealerships around the USA? The guy at the dealer in Omaha was also being sent to Spain a couple weeks ago and said he'd be back with a full personal review afterwards.
Do the dealers that have closer connections like that have first dibs on bikes?
Cool, I'm in NC as well...I spoke to my NC dealer this morning. He met with the regional Ducati rep last week. Dealer says they will receive a demo Icon model week of April 13th with their initial Icon deliveries by end of April. He says Ducati still says Full Throttles delivered "sometime" in May but no idea when in May.
Explodee, (hope your name isn't bad Karma!), are you saying your dealer is getting Urban Enduros in April? My dealer said only Icons are being delivered in April and everything else "sometime" in May.Just talked to my dealer here in Boston. He confirmed that they are in New Jersey and are awaiting inspection. Then off the the floor where they can be picked up. He told me in the next couple of days they will be emailing people details for finalizing the sale in the store. He sounded pretty confident they would be good to go in about 2 weeks. I am second in line for an Urban Enduro. CAN'T WAIT ANYMORE!!!
